The price tag for improvements in 2015 for four southwest ski areas now under the same ownership is $10 million. The four are Purgatory (back to the old name after being Durango in recent years), Arizona Snowbowl, Sipapu, and Pajarito. A businessman from Durango, James Coleman, is behind the effort to create what he calls the "largest ski area collective in the Southwest." The purchase of Purgatory and AZ Snowbowl was announced in October 2014. Guess he wants "Southwest" in relation to skiing to mean more than an airline.
The New Mexico Power Pass makes it pretty clear that Sipapu and Pajarito are meant to be feeder hills for Purgatory and Arizona Snowball, as well as other ski areas within driving distance. Three days at Grand Targhee and Loveland are options for the more expensive versions of the NM Power Pass.
